Even the best cared for teeth can become chipped for a number of reasons, for example during sports injuries or grinding your teeth. Teeth that are weakened by decay can also become chipped when biting hard or chewy food such as toffee.
If your tooth becomes chipped you should contact your dentist straight away because chipped teeth are weaker and can cause discomfort in your mouth. Left untreated they can also develop more serious problems because the sensitive inner parts of the tooth can be exposed.
There are a number of ways to solve the problem of a chipped or broken tooth.
- Composite Bonding and Fillings
- Crowns or Veneers
Our dentists are happy to discuss all the options with you on examination of the tooth.
